Is the person you call "you" just a practical joke played by your brain? Materialist mumbo-jumbo like this has really gone to science's head lately.
Recently on BreakPoint, John Stonestreet said, "you are your body." Meaning that we Christians understand that the human person is an embodied being; our bodies aren't prisons we escape at death. He was right, of course. I say this because I don't want you to misunderstand what I'm about to say: You are NOT your brain.
Let me explain. Much of modern science uses sloppy language that seems to attribute personhood to the central nervous system, conflating matter with mind, electrical signals with thoughts, and tacitly denying free will and even consciousness. You hear it every time a speaker at a TED conference or a host on the Discovery Channel talks of our brains "wanting," "thinking," or "deciding" things. more >>
Answers in Genesis CEO and President Ken Ham has posted another video of his debate with Bill Nye "The Science Guy" at the Ark Encounter in July, in which the two debated morality and why humans wear clothes.
In the video, Ham asked Nye to provide a moral basis for why people wear clothes. Nye responded that people in the scientific community believe that human feelings and emotions are a result of evolution.
"So that we have sympathy for each other, that we get angry with each other, that we work very hard to raise our children, provide them with resources – [it] is deep within us. It's part of who we are. It's not a result of a top-down issuance of laws. That's the claim in science, and we observe this in other species," Nye explained. more >>
An incredible video showing the development of babies inside their mothers womb appeared in a report titled "The Secret Lives of Babies" on NBC's "Today Show," outlining what happens inside "Hotel Uterus" during those nine months before birth.
"Have you ever wondered how they spend their time while hanging out in Mom's belly?" reporter Savannah Guthrie, who happens to be pregnant herself, asks.
The episode first aired two years ago, July 31, 2014, but often gains new life on social media. more >>
The words of the Bible promise a better world than one that science and technology could ever create, says famed evangelist the Rev. Billy Graham.
In Thursday's "My Answers" post on the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association website, Graham was asked where one can find the promise of a better future in light of modern upheavals.
"I used to believe that if we just worked hard enough and tried to understand each other, we'd make the world a peaceful place, but I'm not so sure anymore. Does the Bible give us any hope for a better world?" asked the person. more >>
A giant asteroid could crash into the Earth in the next century and wipe out the human race. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is taking the threat very seriously that it will soon launch a probe to prevent the future catastrophe from taking place.
The End of The World?
Express reports that the giant asteroid called "Bennu" travels 63,000 miles per hour, weighs over 60 million tons and has the diameter of around 500 meters. "Bennu" is larger than the Empire State building and has been compared to the destructive asteroid in the Hollywood movie "Armageddon." more >>
